Breeding Fish Can Be A Rewarding Part Of Your Hobby

Nov 30, 2007
Fish are a wonderful pet to have around, particularly if you like to have a tropical touch in your home decorating. If you have a few fish and would like to have more you should probably check out information on fish breeding. It is hard to describe the feeling you get when you see those brand new baby fish swimming around your tank for the first time. This article will look at a few tips to help get you started in the right direction.

As you check out all the different fish tanks at your local pet store you may notice that some fish get along with each other better than others. This could be a good type of fish to try your hand at breeding. Talk it over with the pet store to see how much trouble the fish you choose will be to breed. Some types of fish are easy to breed while others may be more challenging.

If you want to be a successful fish breeder all of the tank conditions need to be as close to right as you can get them. The water temperature and nitrogen levels need to be correct. If your levels are not correct this will tend to stress your fish out which will make it hard for them to successfully breed. When the fish lay eggs the process is called spawning and the male fish often guards the eggs. You will probably be surprised at the number of fish that will come from these eggs.

Talking to the owner of the pet store will help you know what types of food to feed both the babies and the adult fish. Most of the time flake food works well for freshwater fish, but you need to keep the flakes small. Live food such as shrimp may be good for some species of fish but you need to find out what type of food your fish will do well with before starting to breed fish.

Do your homework and get all of the information you need before you get started breeding fish. Talk to your local pet store owner about everything you can think of and ask a lot of questions and your success rate will be much higher.

Breeding fish can be one of the most rewarding things you can do with your hobby. Start slow and start right and before you know it you will have many new fish swimming around your tank.
